At the foot of the legendary Forcella Sassolungo. Whether on skis in winter or on foot in summer – just look out for the sky-blue shutters.

The treasures of the sea. Brought to the very summit.
Cuisine in the Rifugio Emilio Comici
He would pull the fish out of the Adriatic waters with his bare hands himself if he could. But handling every single aromatic alpine meadow herb with kid gloves at the crack of dawn in summer is more than enough. Our chef the cuisine is a fresh fetishist. One dedicated to good taste – right down to his fingertips. So, our chef has to settle for our own fishermen taking to the waters of Grado every day to make you happy. Because that’s all we want to do – offer tongue-tantalising dishes. Pamper your every sense. With the finest fish fayre around. Sophisticated Alpine cuisine and sinfully wicked desserts.

Emilio Comici, an enthusiastic mountaineer who gave his name to the mountain hut, dedicated his whole life to the Dolomites. Born in 1901 in Trieste, he began to break out early and at 31 he left his home to live in the Dolomites and work as a mountain guide. He was very successful, opening legendary climbing routes, and received a gold medal for climbing the north wall of the Sassolungo. His private life was no less adventurous, and tales of his numerous love affairs gave him the reputation of a Casanova. The idol of many a woman’s dream died tragically in his beloved mountains, falling from a practice cliff in 1940.
